A little note from the creative consultancy part of Reachout Arts known as ReachOut Creative!
Earlier this year following some small but very successful events, we were asked to submit some concepts and pitch for a project as Theatrical Event Producers, something that we were both instantly excited about and buzzing with ideas....the team at the Severn Valley Railway liked what we showed them and so the Severn Valley School of Witchcraft & Wizardry was born....
We set to work on writing, creating, building & producing a whole new magical world with its own set of characters and backstories that would really make our wizard school unique....not a nimbus 2000 in sight, a completely brand new story.
We have been lucky to find a team of 20 amazingly talented actors performing 48 workshop performances and 12 graduation ceremonies over a 4 day period, that has been in the making since early 2019.
As the Wizard Express comes to a close for 2019, we just wanted to say a huge thank you to those who supported us along the way in bringing our vision to life.
The journey has been a lot of fun, a lot of graft, a lot of script writing, prop making, set sourcing, detail incorporating, music editing, costume creation and a lot of coffee drinking, over long hours from concept design to live immersive event and although we have been very protective about it all - (well, it is our baby) we could not have created such a magical event without the support of the following people and local businesses....
Thank You from the bottom of our hearts....it has been an absolute blast and we hope to see everyone back at the Severn Valley School of Witchcraft & Wizardry in 2020....we are already working on the new curriculum and lots of new ideas that will really make it worth returning for 😉
If putting an immersive theatrical twist into your project is something you would be keen to chat to us about...please do get in touch.
